WIN! 20 COPIES OF STAR-PACKED SCARY FLICK CONTAGION.

If you caught the thriller of the year Contagion in the cinema, you've probably just about got over the heebie-jeebies it gave you enough to watch it again. And if you haven't seen it yet, you're in for a treat.

Featuring more star turns than you can shake a stick at including Gwyneth Paltrow, Matt Damon, Jude Law and Kate Winslet, this spine-tingler follows the story of the spread of a lethal virus.

When Beth Emhoff (Gwyneth) returns to Minneapolis from Hong Kong, what she thought was jet lag takes a nasty turn. Two days later, she's dead in the ER and the doctors tell her devastated husband (Matt) they have no idea why. Soon, others exhibit the same mysterious symptoms: hacking coughs and fever, followed by seizure, brain hemorrhage... and death. The numbers quickly multiply as the 'contagion' sweeps across borders. One activist blogger (Jude) claims the public isn't getting the truth about what's really going on, and sets off an epidemic of paranoia and fear as infectious as the virus itself.

This film might have you washing your hands every half an hour for weeks, but it's worth it. Just make sure you've got a cushion to hide behind.
